- Ministry assistants and community advisers are an important part of the EMU community, being leaders and providing spiritual fellowship in residence halls.
We require full-time, single students to live on campus and build social and life skills. In 2009 we opened our newest residence hall, the energy-efficient Cedarwood, and in 2010-11 completed major renovations of some of our existing halls. We’re committed to providing excellence in housing.
Residence halls have double rooms, single rooms, four-person adjoining rooms, and suites. Review our campus housing policy
